Recent guest reviews

I was supposed to stay here in early Jan, regrettably my trip had to end early so wasn't able to stay in Joburg. I contacted the hotel to see if I could cancel - was told I would get response in 48 hrs - never got one!

Very affordable accommodation, nice comfy beds, very clean, very good food and an awesome rooftop bar. If you are driving, the parking is a bit challenging. Booking and check-in was excellent. The staff are very professional, friendly and attentive.

I've stayed at this hotel several times and I really cannot identify any issues to report. The service is excellent & beyond the call, the room quality is of a high standard and always very clean. The rooftop bar is a good opportunity to take photos / selfiesof the CBD and Johannesburg suburbs

Great facility the workers are fantastic and the location is in the heart of the city.i will surely recommend this hotel to anyone looking forward to visit Jozi and SA as a whole.Great stuff,Big thanks to Monalisa.

Stuff are so friendly and helpful the price is fair and special thanks to Yash the hotel manager really good friendly helpful and honest man the location of hotel is good the breakfast isn’t so extended but has good quality

Unacceptable that you can offer room with a leaking ceiling. We expected better value for money considering that this was a special occasion we should have received better. You need to review the premises

Had a huuuge nice room with a great view of Johannesburg city center - the bed, pillows and duvet was superb. Great breakfast and tentative and friendly staff. Many cafes, restaurants and shops/markets in walking distance.

I really cant complain about anything everything was top of the range the service I got from the reception guy or rather the guy from the front desk was top of the range The room I was given was one big room witch I enjoyed or rather we enjoyed and the nice view from our hotel room its a pity we didn't get to go to the roof top but trust me next time we will

We really enjoyed our stay , staff were very friendly and helpful. We had an amazing view. Will definitely stay again , this time when elevate doesnt have a private function. Room and facilities were excellent. :)

We had a lovely stay in Reef Hotel. Thank you for your amazing service. The oly disappointing factor was the housekeeping, we found dirty towels in the room that were used by previous guests but overall the service was good.
